Get moving safely and effectively
At Tiaki we know that you want to get moving (it might have been awhile). To get moving, you need to find an effective and safe form of exercise. And going to the gym is just not your thing. It can be frustrating not knowing where to begin if you’ve been away from exercise for too long or need a more effective way to get your fitness back.

The exercises that you perform as part of the Tiaki Pilates classes help you strengthen both small and large muscles.
Frequently Asked Questions
It’s much better to have control than strength. Many people have heard of Pilates in the context of back pain or improving core strength.
Our ‘core’ is the abdominal (tummy), pelvis, hip and lower back muscles that support our spine. Rather than building core strength, Pilates actually helps you use the correct muscles to have better control over how you hold yourself. And this control can help protect your back, reduce back pain, improve posture and help tummy muscles.
Better control and strength can help improve sports performance as well as daily activities.
Pilates is a low-impact exercise perfect for getting back into exercise again, recovering from injury or childbirth, or when you’re trying to keep active as you get older. Rather than building strength, Pilates focuses on how you move and coordinate your muscles to move, and teaches you how to do it right.
The exercises we teach at Tiaki Pilates help you use big and small muscles to give you complete control over your movement. The equipment and reformer machines we use in some of our Pilates classes make learning Pilates easier.
The equipment can seem overwhelming at first, but with the guidance of our expert instructors, you’ll soon experience how easy Pilates exercises can be to learn and enjoy.
Regular Pilates classes will help you increase muscular strength, endurance and mobility, improve posture and breathing, and reduce injury risk. Making it the perfect form of exercise if you’ve been slowing down, not exercised for a while or want to get tummy muscles back after pregnancy and childbirth.
Everyone who is new to the studio has an introductory session where we find out about you, your movement or body concerns, previous injuries, level of experience and what your goals are.
We then take you through a Pilates session so you can see what it’s like.
We don’t focus on weight loss. We focus on sustainable regular exercise with the aim to strengthen your whole body, improve mobility and improve how you move.
We encourage you to create long term habits and enjoy your time at Tiaki so that you are more likely to make it a lifetime habit. If you exercise regularly you’re less likely to suffer pain and dysfunction.
